The Brooklyn Nets have another victory, this time against the Los Angeles Clippers (108-112), while the Philadelphia 76ers have relapsed against the Toronto Raptors (110-103).
Game of the Night: Los Angeles Clippers – Brooklyn Nets
Brooklyn doesn’t stop anymore. On the night of Sunday to Monday, as part of the NBA regular season, the Nets disposed of the Los Angeles Clippers (108-112), on the side of the Staples Center. The visitors, deprived of Kevin Durant, have, as very often since the beginning of this current exercise, been able to rely on a more than prolific duo. Indeed, James Harden and Kyrie Irving finish top scorers in their franchise.
The former even finished top scorer of this meeting, with even a double double key and personal statistics of 37 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists. As for the second, he compiled 28 points, 4 rebounds and 8 assists. Among the locals, two men are interposed. The Clippers’ leading scorer is Paul George (34 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists), while Kawhi Leonard finishes in a double-double (29 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists). So that was not enough to prevent the Nets from pocketing a sixth straight win.

The MVP of the night: Giannis Antetokounmpo
After a difficult pass, Milwaukee seems to have finally returned to the forefront. On the night of Sunday to Monday, as part of the NBA regular season, the Bucks chained a second success in a row, this time against the Sacramento Kings (128-115). And to ensure this new victory, the franchise based in the state of Wisconsin was able to rely on Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The Greek ends this meeting as the best scorer of his franchise but also the best scorer of this match, with a double-double in the key and the following statistics: 38 points, 18 rebounds and 4 assists. His frankness needed a good quarter-time before gaining the upper hand over his evening opponent, while “The Greek Freak” was also more than efficient, in terms of free throws (19/24) . The double MVP in title therefore made sure to prevent the Kings from sticking together, at the scoreboard level. Sacramento had to face the facts.
You can now return to your Lakers memes, @SacramentoKings.
